Help the community by answering this question:


Dear Mudd23, I understand your situation and can relate to your job search problems, declining savings, etc.! Could we get together to go through the different properties and figure out a game plan? You may have other options, or we can get the process going quickly. I am willing to answer any of your questions and the consultation is at no obligation or cost to you. I can also help with the tax valuation (Zillow is not necessarily an accurate depiction of property value. It is best used as a gauge.) I can explain further if you like.

Mudd, can you send me your contact info (email or phone). I think it would be beneficial for all involved to communicate directly rather on this site.

It looks like you have two options. One is to attempt to list the properties and the other is to attempt a short sale on some or all of them. As I stated before I would be happy to assist you. I would be willing to reduce my fees in an effort to help you sell as many of the homes as possible without having to do a short sale. After a detailed market analysis we could determine what you owe and what a reasonable sales price could be supported by the current market conditions. It is possible we could list all of your homes and sell them allowing you to avoid a short sale.

While attempting this I have several investors who will also, with your permission, talk directly with your lenders in an attempt to agree upon a sales price for purchase. This options typically takes about 60-90 days to complete.

If you would like to talk in greater detail about this please let me know.

Hi Guy and other Realtors,

I am putting together some numbers per request.

I am responding to someone who asked me why I can't afford these properties.

I have been responsible and have not been late on my payments, however because I got laid off 2 years ago I can no longer absorb the neg cash flow. I used to get paid $100k+ but I haven't been able to find a job since...I have not been lazy and it's been a nightmare. I have used up all of my savings to maintain these properties.

Also, if someone here can help me out with this I will be grateful. The reason my neg cash flow goes up is because my property taxes keep going up even though the values are going down. The properties are great and 7/8 are rented out, but the property taxes are hurting me. I searched zillow and the values seem to be holding but people say I cannot sell for what it is worth.

Thanks Everyone.

I can assist you if you are still in need. I would need additional property details such as the lenders being used on these properties. I have had successful short sales with all of the major lenders like BofA, Chase and Wells Fargo.

Mudd just a question when you are at a 87% occupancy rate how can you not make your payments? You should have 3 units worth of rent left over every month if you bought properly.

When you have time, shoot me an email with the specifics (addresses, rent amounts, property condition, amounts owed, etc.) and I'll see if I'm interested in them for personal investment purchase. If not, I can at least give you some direction on the process ins and outs.
